As a side note I met a dude that had the idea of using a car alternator with plastic blades from a cheap electric fan as a windmill generator...just add voltage regulator, battery and walah. He was a roughneck from the oilfield...those guys fabricate almost half the stuff they do. He said he got the idea when his fan belt broke and he spun the alternator by hand to charge the batteries enough to get to the gas station.
GM 1999 and back have an internal regulator
